Hello,
I will advise you about some of the simple books for you to read. For example, The chocalate War, the witch of blackbird Pond, It's that, cat; the shadow of bow and so on.
Wish you a good day

Now I am unsure of your age, but I would suggest reading childrens books. I know that this sounds stupid and you may feel stupid doing it, but it can help a lot.

As an author I would suggest Roald Dahl.

Have a look at some graded readers. They are written for learners of English and you can choose the level that is right for you. Don't choose a book that you need a dictionary to read. Keep it simple and you will enjoy reading and then after some books at one level, you can move up to a higher level.
I have some of my graded readers on my website and there are a lot more out there.
Happy reading!

Jeremy

Hi,
I personally feel that the best way to build up English vocab is by religiously reading an English newspaper everyday.
